    Tarantino’s Early Influences

    The Independent has an article about Italian B-movie director Fernando Di Leo – who happens to be an early influence for Quentin Tarantino.

    Di Leo’s films are B movies par excellence: garish, intricately plotted, ultra-violent stories about pimps and petty gangsters, told with plenty of attitude. There is an intensity and formal ingenuity here that you rarely find in more prestigious (and expensive) pictures.

    Only a couple of Di Leo’s films are available from Amazon, including: Slaughter Hotel and Mister Scarface (w/ Jack Palance).
